Rihanna is changing careers. It’s been rumored that she scrapped her highly-anticipated R8 album as she focuses on her new beauty and fashion ventures. The pop singer is getting into the tattoo business, but it’s not what you think. Rihanna is collaborating with flash tattoo designer Jacquie Aiche.
Now fans can finally get their hands on some of Rihanna’s much-adored tattoos. The “FourFiveSeconds” singer collaborated with the temporary tattoo designer on a limited series collection of flash tattoos. What are flash tattoos, you ask? They’re the gold and silver tattoos that resemble jewelry. Flash tattoos are one of the biggest trends for the summer.
Jacquie Aiche announced her collaboration with RiRi in a recent press release obtained by the Hollywood Life.
“Creating the tattoos was a really collaborative process between Rihanna and myself, which we feel is so evident in the final designs. There are gothic tattoos, but then we mixed in lots of daintier pieces for layering that are reminiscent of the way we stack our jewelry. The process was so much fun we decided to make another round, as well. Something a little softer and sexier with some unexpected inspiration. Stay tuned!”
Rihanna’s flash tattoos will come in two colors: “metallic gold and black,” according to the report. Each set will contain seven sheets in a wide variety of patterns. Rihanna fans can wear the tattoos as chokers, rings, or bracelets. Just like children’s temporary tattoos, flash tattoos can be easily applied with water and last almost a week. The patterns and symbols on the tattoos make it easy for fans to replicate the tattoos that Rihanna wears on her hands, but without the permanent ink.
Rihanna’s temporary tattoos are available Jacquie Aiche’s website at the price of $27 for the time being. The designer hinted that she will be releasing another collection that is “a little softer, with some unexpected inspiration.” It hasn’t been confirmed whether or not this new collection will also be inspired by some of Rihanna’s other tattoos.
Meanwhile, French tabloid, Oops! Magazine is shamelessly talking about Rihanna once again. The tabloid is claiming that the singer is “crazy” about her alleged new boyfriend Karim Benzema. An insider said that RiRi calls her supposed new beau “My Baby Benze.”
Rihanna and Karim Benzema have been spotted at a variety of places lately, sparking the dating rumors. They were last seen at the Griffin night club, where they were seen dancing the night away. Rihanna and Benzema were then seen eating at late-night dinner at 5 a.m.
The American media is claiming that Rihanna has already introduced the Real Madrid player to her family. She reportedly invited Benzema and his teammates to Los Angeles where they met with her family. Rihanna and Benzema also spent some time at the Andaz Hotel and the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood.
